StratosFur is a furry convention in Houston, Texas, USA. It will be held at the Houston Marriott Westchase from June 16-18, 2023. Its parent organization is B.O.O.P. (Board of Opportunity and Outreach for Panspeciesm).
Its tagline is "A Con in Houston for all Furkind".
The charity this year will be Give Us Paws, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in Houston, TX that provides subsidized and free training of eligible candidates' dogs as assistance animals.
Shortly after returning from Texas Furry Fiesta 2019, several Houston area furs were inspired together to start a new furry con in Houston. They decided that StratosFur will have an outer space theme as a nod to Houston’s role in the history of space exploration including Apollo 11. Houston is home to the NASA Mission Control Center.
As a furry convention in one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the U.S., StratosFur aims to be an experience that reflects these values:
Board of Directors
- President - Intaglio Whitegraven
- Secretary - Guillion
- Treasurer - Mantorok
- Director of Public Outreach - Vacant
- Director of Personnel Management - WonderQueen
- Director of Facilities Management - Dicey Rat
StratosFur's mascot is Laika, a brown and white canine with aspirations to become an astronaut. Her name comes from the Russian space dog that was sent into Earth's orbit in 1957, paying homage to one of the first dogs in space. She is typically seen wearing a colored jumpsuit or standard spacesuit.
